Rolling Acres Farm and Stables, owned by the Stannard family of Springfield, placed well at the 43rd Annual Kentucky Celebration in Liberty, Ky., last month. More than 500 entries took part in the four-day event.

Walk Time Charlie, ridden by Rocky McCoy, won the coveted Two-year-old Stallions and Geldings Class by unanimous vote.

Also placing first were Ritz’s Yard Bunny in the Show Pleasure Open Specialty class; Triggers Pretty Boy won in the Three-Year-Old and Under Park Performance class and Pushers Ritzy Pride in the Three-Year-Old Stallions and Geldings class. In the Park performance class, Ricky Business by JFK finished as the Reserve World Grand Champion.

Placing second in the Two-Year-Old Plantation Pleasure class was Jose’s Quick Coyote, with one sixth place finish and an eighth place finish in the event.

The show was a success, with horses inspected for soundness by the USDA and show’s DQPs.

Clements Ag Supply of Springfield worked with Rolling Hills Farm to make sure the horses received the right nutritious formula to make the horses more competitive on the Tennessee Walking Horse show circuit.
